2019 Tax Notices

Notice, that the deadline for paying your 2019 property taxes without penalty is this Thursday, July 4. 

If you live in your home as your principal residence, but cannot pay your tax bill, you should still claim your Home Owner Grant. Penalty applies to all taxes, including the grant portion outstanding after the due date of July 4.

If you are a new owner and do not receive a tax notice by June 8, 2019, please come into the District Office to obtain a duplicate copy.  Notices are mailed to the current owner shown on the Assessment Roll.  Depending upon the date of purchase, the District may not have the new owner’s information and the tax notice will be mailed to the previous owner. 

The deadline for paying your 2019 property taxes without penalty is Thursday, July 4, 2019. Even if a bank is paying the taxes through a mortgage, homeowners who qualify must still claim the Home Owner Grant.  Failure to claim the Grant by the due date will result in a penalty.

For your convenience, payment can be made through your bank (online or telephone banking) or at the District office (after hours drop box available for cheques). Home Owner Grant applications must still be mailed, dropped off at the office or claimed through our online service. 

If you are out of town and believe that there is not enough time to send your cheque by mail, please contact the office before the due date to discuss possible alternate methods of payment to assist you in making sure your payment is received on time.  Couriers are not always the best option for timely delivery, but if you must use one, consider postdating your cheque and sending it early before the due date.  The District Office must receive the funds by the due date, post-marks are not considered.
